Jamaican Black Castor Oil or JBCO as it affectionately called in the hair community is a ‘tried and true’ staple for most hair types. Whether relaxed or natural, most people can agree that the one ultimate benefit of this multi-purpose oil is Hair Growth.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil is made by first hand-picking wild organic castor beans and then allowing them to dry so that the seeds will pop out of the pods. After the seeds are gathered, they are roasted then pounded into mulch. The mulch is later emptied into a large pot. The pot and its contents are then laid on a slow burning wood fire.
The contents are continuously stirred, and as the oil rises to the surface it is skimmed off. The skimmed off oil is later subjected to further phases of skimming to ensure that it’s devoid of any speck of water. To ensure that the oil is of the highest quality a simple ritual such as stirring in one direction and not looking away when the oil is rising to the surface may be observed. When the process is completed, all that is left is the ultra pure, light to dark brown, “Jamaican Black Castor Oil.”
Jamaican Black Castor Oil works for all hair types and has amazing benefits. It will moisturize, thicken, strengthen and rapidly increase hair growth. It increases blood flow to the scalp, supplying valuable nutrients to hair follicles. Jamaican Black Castor Oil will also prevent hair breakage, dandruff, eczema and dry, itchy scalp. Jamaican Black Castor Oil has crossed over into other ethnic groups, and is now being used widely for some of the same purposes, as well as new found uses including eyelash and eyebrow hair growth and as massage oil.
OK, so what is different about JBCO versus other castor oils?
Over the last ten years, it is an established precedent that Jamaican Black Castor oil is more effective than the clear pharmacy castor oil because of the ash content due to roasting of the beans. Therefore, it stands to reason that the more ash content, the more effective the oil. This is not a myth; it is evidence based on scientific facts.
Other than hair growth, are there any issues JBCO can solve for women with textured hair?
JBCO will solve the following: Dry brittle hair, hair breakages, dandruff, dry itchy scalp, eczema, thinning hair, alopecia, bald spots, and will rapidly increase hair growth including eyebrows and eyelashes.
In short, JBCO is a holy grail in the hair community and synonymous with healthy hair growth. It is no wonder that it is the main ingredient in our Scalp and Hair Treatment which is a lightweight, scientifically-proven formula to help grow your hair.
